The price for the new Sanford Medical Center on Veterans Boulevard has mushroomed. The cost of the new facility is expected to hit 550-million dollars by the time it is done in 6-years. The medical center is expected to be just over a million square feet. Groundbreaking is set for July 31st. The number of beds, operating rooms and number of physicians have all increased at the new center. With Costco also coming into the neighborhood, this means more traffic on Veterans Boulevard, where West Fargo City officials have been studying and preparing for changes on the new road.

Chris Brungard – West Fargo City Eng.: β€œIt is going to be phenomenal what is going to happen traffic wise, our study we just completed is this will be as busy as 45th street and the interstate is now.”

Changes coming soon include more signals at Veterans Boulevard and 23rd avenue, and eventually more turn lanes.
